Z60A Fielding Three Stations to Handle Huge Pileups for New DXCC #1:

The special Z60A activation to mark the addition of the Republic of Kosovo to the DXCC List has topped 50,000 contacts and counting. Pileups continue to be heavy.

Z60A is operating split and is not listening on its transmit frequency! Pay attention to operators' instructions!

Z60A has said it will operate in this weekend's CQ WPX RTTY contest, while next weekend would showcase the most active locals, including Z61DX, Z61VB, Z62FB, and Z63DBB.

Dona Berisha, Z63DBB, will be among the local hams expected to operate during the Z60A special activation.

The Z60A activation will culminate on Kosovo's 10th anniversary of independence, Sunday, February 18, the weekend of the ARRL International DX Contest (CW), and some "sporadic" Z60A activity is anticipated during the contest. Visiting operators will team up with locals to wrap up the project and salute the ARRL and the US contesting community, as credit for working Z6 now is accepted for ARRL awards.

Manmade noise in the capital city of Pristina has been problematic. Plans call for using donated equipment to set up a "clean receiving site" outside of Pristina.

The European DX Foundation (EUDXF) has made a cash donation to Kosovo's IARU member society, SHRAK, and the Yasme Foundation has presented a series of ARRL publications to the SHRAK Headquarters library at the Technical University of Pristina.

Others wishing to donate to support Amateur Radio in Kosovo should contact Wayne Mills, N7NG.

The complete Z60A log will be uploaded approximately 4 weeks after the current activation, which will end immediately following Kosovo's 10th independence anniversary celebration on February, 18. -- Thanks to Wayne Mills, N7NG, and Martti Laine, OH2BH
